RADON TESTING MAY - AUGUST?: 6 MONTH RADON TEST ENCOURAGED  

Thank you for your interest in testing with Evict Radon

Evict Radon is a Canadian non-profit organization dedicated to solving Canada’s significant and worsening radon-gas exposure problem. Radon is a substantial cause of lung cancer even in non-smokers. By testing your home with one of our non-profit, research-grade radon test kits and enrolling in our national, public university-based research study, you are helping Evict Radon-aligned researchers from across Canada to understand radon exposure and develop new ways to protect ourselves and loved ones.

Common practice states that winter is the optimal time to radon test. However, as we collect more data, we have determined little difference between winter and spring radon testing. We do, however, encourage our participants to test over seasonal change. At this time, the best and most accurate radon readings obtained during the spring and summer months are those that are longer than 6 months. 

Our Research

By ordering one of our Evict Radon national study test kits you’re not only purchasing a quality-controlled device, you are also contributing to public sector cancer research by consenting to join with our team of University researchers from across Canada to understand and ultimately engineer out the radon from our homes. Everything we do goes through a rigorous Research Ethics Board approval process. All we need is your consent to access your radon reading and the corresponding home metric survey that you will fill out during the registration process. Please note that all of your data is immediately de-identified, kept encrypted within Canada at secure locations, and we never publish individual addresses or anything that can identify you
